    How painfully ignorant this man is. Gays have not been denied basic human rights? It boils down to the fact – as still thrown at us – that we can hide our sexuality whereas they can’t hide their colour. Yes, we can wear a mask of heterosexuality in order to be “normal”, which completely misses the point. So yes, gays have been denied basic human rights, and for much longer, and in many black countries, we still are. We have been hanged from trees, we have been subjected to police raids, and we still are picked out for gang assault and murder. For this man to play “who’s the bigger victim” immediately makes him the loser in this repulsive game.
    And black and gay are not mutually exclusive. The same proportion of gay people in the general population will appear in the black population.
